Nurgle and Slaanesh are joining the fray in Total War: Warhammer 3. A new trailer revealed on Thursday shows the rotten hordes of the Plaguefather clashing with the hedonistic cultists of the Lord of Pleasure. You can take a look at the trailer below.

Nurgle and Slaanesh are the last of the launch factions to be shown off in trailers, with the kingdom of Kislev, empire of Grand Cathay, hungry Ogre Kingdsoms, fiery forces of Khorne and all-knowing Tzeentch previously revealed. Total War: Warhammer 3 is exploring previously unseen lore with these factions, meaning it might realize the vision of the tabletop games.

Total War: Warhammer 3 is currently scheduled to arrive on Feb. 17, 2022. Anyone that preorders the game or buys it within the first week of launch is getting the Ogre Kingdoms race pack for free. Total War: Warhammer 3 is also launching into Xbox Game Pass for PC on day one.
